As the headteacher of a large school, every year I recommend ISC Medical's UKCAT to all students in my school who wish to study medicine. The questions are of high quality and cover the full spectrum of question type found in the exam. Over the years, all our students have obtained high marks in the UKCAT exam, which afforded them a greater choice of medical schools to which they could apply. --Julia Verne, Headteacher
I run the "Widening Access to Medicine" programme for a large London hospital, a programme designed to offer teenagers from deprived backgrounds access to medical studies. Every year, we provide copies of ISC Medical's excellent UKCAT practice book to all participants in the programme. We find ISC's UKCAT preparation book to be the most in-depth book on the topic, and also the most challenging; this stops our students from being complacent and ensures they score consistently high every year. All of them have scored over 675, with many scoring up to 800. --John Hendon, Widening Access to Medicine coordinator
There are several reasons why ISC Medical's books for UKCAT preparation are the bestsellers: Aside from the sheer number of questions they offer and the variety in levels of difficulty, the quality of the explanations provided offer students the opportunity to learn invaluable techniques to improve the accuracy of their answers and to optimise their response time. This book will challenge you but in the end it will also help you overcome with ease the challenge that the UKCAT exam represents --Alina Zerbazina, First Year Medical Student
